    Boots did it in G which I think is easier . Maybe cause I learned it in that key Most string bands prefer G
    Thanks for posting
    Don't post a playlist as the songs in a Realbook if the changes aren't from the book.
    If you do transcribe changes from a book put it in the title RB1, RB2, GGB, Sher, etc

    Default Yakety Sax

    Yakety does appear to be the correct spelling
    I took this from the Benny Hill theme in another thread.
    I noticed the bridge was different (or wrong) in that chart so this is the update with the proper name.
    Note the song is really When The Saints Come Marching In ...in 2 keys G and C.

    i realize that this is already in iReal Pro, but i think there is a refrain in a different key. (G to C). Please let me know if i'm wrong.
